Old Town

This was found in a group of things, supposedly from "old Rich Hill ",north of the present townsite, during the early coal boom. After a new Rich Hill boomed, this area was known as Ovid,then Shobe until its demise. Located in the southeast corner of section 25, New Home township,it sprawled over into northern Osage township,before they both faded away. Basically this area was two miles north of Park Avenue, in the present Rich Hill.
